Assignment of Rights (AoR) Model Contract

The Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), Ofgem and the participating CTSI Consumer Codes have been working together to create an approved model contract that AoR Investors are strongly encouraged to use. The AoR Model Contract contains all the provisions we would expect to see in an AoR approved contract. If you choose to use the AoR Model Contract it should be adapted for your business before making the application, but amendments should not be made to the wording of the AoR Model Contract clauses.

" The Ombudsman provides real protection. Both consumers and Installers have access to a complaints service that has 'teeth' and the power to enforce its awards."
